So...is fat bad for you? What if I just didn't eat any fat...that would make me healthy, right? Does eating fat make me fat? These are some questions that I get asked frequently by college students. Fat is not bad for you, your body actually needs fat, and eating fat doesn't make you fat. Easy answers...but it is important to remember that fat does add up.

Colorful food means nutritious food...and I'm not talking about Fruit Loops or Skittles. Fruits and vegetables are rich in compounds called phytochemicals. These compounds give fruits and vegetables their beautiful colors. Filling your diet with (natural) color ensures you will receive a variety of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Celebrate these red, white, and blue foods this week! P.S. Throw in some feta cheese and yogurt to make a complete meal...read more to see why these two white foods are included.
